Lesson Learned: Never Assume


Ever felt like you chased the wrong thing one day, you poured in so much energy and fear into the possibility of what could happen, and then when you stare and face it, nothing happens at all?

That was sort of my week this past week, which brings up a really good point, I love it when I’m wrong. Now don’t get me wrong, at first it kind of stings. I back up and I think, “What just happened here?”

But the clouds start to fade and the emotion breaks up. I feel joy instead of fear, and I remember my husband and I, standing in the kitchen while I cleaned up dinner this week. He asked me, so, how did your meeting go today? I felt a giant grin lift my face as I wiped down the counter and I answered back, surprisingly, nothing bad happened, and you were right. 

I have always said, I am my worst critic. It’s true and this past week has actually been really good for me—a reminder to relax and live in the moment. A lesson for next time to stop myself and say, you know what, you don’t know.

Right now, I’m feeling thankful for my Facebook community and all of my new friends. Searching out quotes and pictures centered on peace, love, and happiness, keeps me focused. So I’m learning and thinking about giving every moment a chance, and to never, ever, assume intention.

I’ll keep doing my best!
